Allergy-Free Signs (freebie)

Do you have a student with a food allergy in your classroom?  I've noticed every year more and more kids are developing all kinds of food allergies other than the typical peanut/nut allergy.  I know it is very important to keep our students safe from allergic reactions.  By having allergy safe and awareness signs in the entrance of your classroom will alert people like staff, parents, and visitors know what foods to avoid bringing into the classroom, especially for classroom parties and snack time.

Some kids are very severe, such as one student I work with.  He is allergic to peanuts, tree nuts, and gluten.  As I walk around my school building, I noticed many of the allergy classroom signs are bland and boring looking.  So I decided to create my own and I thought why not use the popular favorite, chevron designs, to decorate my classroom signs!  I've made the signs with 8 different chevron colors to match your classroom decor.  Let me know what you think by clicking on the respective TpT and TN stores link or on the pictures below.

Included in this packet are signs for peanuts, all nuts (tree nuts), gluten, soy, milk and eggs.  Also, I made combination allergy-free signs for students who have multiple food allergies.

Let me know what you think of my new classroom signs!!  If you don't see a food allergy combination in my packet that you need in your own classroom, please email me or leave a comment below and I will create one for you!  Have a great Tuesday!
